Notes/Commercial Description:
For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey.

We believe health-conscious beer drinkers and the millions of Americans who suffer from Celiac disease can cut back on gluten while relishing the distinction and drinkability of this very special brew.

Bottled on 01/22/13

Poured into a pint glass.

Look: Pours a copper color with almost no head. (I should have got violent with it) There doesn't seem like much lacing, not sure if that's just how the brew is, or my glass is messed up, or what. Nothing special, so I give it my usual "good" of 3.75.

Aroma: At first there was a lot! I was getting the obvious whiff of strawberry, but more like a Jolly Rancher type strawberry, probably the honey that's in there that is doing that. Didn't pick up on the honey too much, and there wasn't time. After about two minutes, the aroma just straight up died. So I can't really say what else is suppose to be there. It gets a 3.75 for the initial burst of smell, which was awesome, but not any higher, as I didn't get to enjoy it.

Taste: My first thoughts were watered down Strawberry Kool-Aid. (That sounds bad, but to me, it was pretty good.) After a bit of warmth, the malty-likeness comes through in the honey. I wish I had more experience with Sorghum in brews, as it seems like it's interesting. (Just not sure if that's what is making it interesting!)

Feel: A weird combination of crisp and light, with something heavier. It finishes heavy. But the first sip is like Sprite. No detection of the mild ABV.

Overall: I had no idea what to expect with this one, and it's a very solid fruit beer. I've only found a couple of others that I genuinely like, and I'll now add this one to the list. Nothing outstanding that'll make me search it out, but when I'm in the mood, and it's in my field of vision, I won't hesitate to pick it up.
